Article ID: 3261 Published: 13 Dec 2014 Updated: 21 May 2019 Authored by: Aust Domains Support
There are three industry-standard terms that play a significant role in the Domain Name registration process: The Registry, Registrar, and Registrant. Know their difference and how they work in the following information:
||A Registry is an organisation that manages a database for Top-Level Domain Names (TLDs). They create and regulate Domain Extensions, set the rules for Domains, and work with Registrars to sell these Domain Names to the public.
||A Registrar is an organisation, like Aust Domains, which has the authority to issue licenses and provide registration services for TLDs. They serve as the middle-man between the Registry and the Registrant where they function as the distributor of the Domain services so that clients can build their own websites.
||A Registrant is the individual or company who purchases a Domain Name. Upon purchase and registration, the Registrant automatically becomes the legal owner of the Domain Name.
